Sesame and oregano lavosh crackers

These tasty little bickies are a very fun cooking project for kids. Kids love rolling out the dough and cutting it into shapes to bake, will keep them engaged for hours… well at least 10 minutes. I will try them soon with bacon, different cheese, herbs and spices. They are great for kids lunch boxes and snacks. Also great for adults to serve with your favourite cheeses and dips and super easy.

white chocolate and apricot torte

 

apricot and white chocolate cake

I froze heaps of stewed apricots in summer and normally make crumbles or pies but I felt like something chocolatey and this is what I came up with! It is a delicious moist cake, serve it with double cream.

120 grams butter
150 grams white chocolate
100 grams caster sugar
50 ml milk
teaspoon vanilla essence
120 grams stewed and pureed apricot
2 eggs
270 grams self-raising flour

Turn oven on to 180 C. Melt butter and the chocolate by placing them in a large bowl and sitting the bowl on a pot that has gently simmering water in it. Stir the butter and chocolate regularly until the butter and chocolate are melted. Add the sugar and milk and beat well. Add the apricot, eggs, vanilla and self-raising flour and beat well for a few minutes. Pour into an 18 cm diameter cake tin that has been greased and floured or lined with baking paper. Bake for about 25 minutes in a 180 C oven or until golden and cooked through. Turn out onto a cake rack to cool.
